Here are some more thoughts after I went back and read a little before and after that passage:

New Jersey: I think the party was in NJ. The Johnsons had some palatial homes there. There has been no mention of the Hamptons yet in the book.

Date: Seems like if you are going to give someone their first birthday party of their life, you would do it ON their birth DAY. So, even though it was Monday, these aren't really the kind of people who let a WEEKDAY interfere with a good time.

Availability: My brief looksy came up with the boys in Colo. the week before and upstate NY the week after. Plenty of time to move some equipment around the country.

I've got a couple of sources that I can look at the house over the weekend.

Thanks, corry, you've got me interested again in taking this further.

Enjoy,
Judge TOOTMO

If it's NJ, it would mean they played twice at a private party for roughly the same people. Or more likely the source's memory or writer's sleuthing or both wasn't quite perfect, and locales just got confused. Guess they didn't invite any tapers.

"Each year, Richards would try to outdo himself: The Grateful Dead,"

The book says that Mary Lea's son brought the Dead (Who are these dirty people?) so could they have played later on in the 80's? Mary Lea was born in the 20's and Marty the 30's so they would seem a little early to be Dead fans on their own.

BUT, I pulled up a nymag.com article and it stated that Mary Lea DID give Marty a SouthHampton estate in 1978 as a wedding present (nice present, huh?) So, I'll bet you are right about the show being out on the Island on Gin Lane.

I pdf'd some of the pages before returning the book and I will try to get them up here some how.

I asked McNally on Facebook.
